Two More Bands Announced For Download 2008

"We were one man down," explains bassist Michael Todd. "Our drummer didn't make it over, so we were playing with our drum tech as a replacement and it was less than cosy onstage. It was kind of a bum-out as it was one of the biggest shows that we have ever played. "Donington is one of those festivals that if you have a good spot on the bill, you've made it!" he adds. "It's going to be awesome."

"We've wanted to play Download for years," explains Children Of Bodom bassist Henkka SeppÑlÑ. "I can't wait to see Judas Priest. They're a band everybody has to see!"

The Kerrang!-sponsored Download festival will be headlined by: Kiss, The Offspring and Lostprophets

Other bands on the bill include: Alter Bridge, Children Of Bodom, Coheed & Cambria, Disturbed, HIM, In Flames, Incubus, Judas Priest, Motorhead and Rise Against,

The Download festival takes place the weekend of June 13 to June 15. Tickets are on sale now. Prices are as follows: a full weekend ticket: £130, standard camping: £20, camper van: £40, family zone camping: £20, lockers: £11, parking £10 in advance or £15 on the day.

Rise Against Member Recruits Others For New Band

Chris Chasse Leaves Rise Against, Enlists Punk Veteran Brett Rasmussen of Ignite, forms Last of The Believers and Signs to New Age Records

After parting ways with Rise Against, Chris Chasse had no intentions of wasting any time; Instead he got creative and enlisted Brett Rasmussen of So Cal punk staples, Ignite. He also roped Dave Peters, vocalist of hardcore-favorites Throwdown, into jumping on board for a few tracks and it didn’t take much to convince Steve Jennings and Nik Piscitello, members of Californian-based Spark of Life, to fill-out the line-up.

"From the second I heard them, I was really hooked" says label owner Mike Hartsfield. "When you look at those involved, it would be impossible for Last of the Believers to be anything but awesome"!

Launching their MySpace profile on June 26th, it has been less then four weeks later that the bands page exploded with over 39,000 views; closing in on 50,000 song plays and 7,000 friends. They are already ranked number 38 out of 119,000+ hardcore bands on Myspace music, which is no small feat. PureVolume.com have already featured the band twice after Last of the Believers rocketed into number one on the sites Unsigned Artists Charts, while Alternative Press Music Editor, Scott Heisel has said, “This shit rules. Can't wait to hear more!” This reaction seems to be the general consensus of American fans who on pre-order alone have pushed their self released EP into the top 9 albums available through interpunk.com.

"The artists and bands that have come out through New Age Records have not only changed my life, and help define who I am, but have also stood for something that means the world to me" states lead vocalist Steve Jennings. "They stand for something that is bigger than music and bigger than a scene. They stand for honesty, staying true to yourself and trying to make this world a better place. New Age to me is so much more then music and bands, it's an ethic, and that ethic lives inside me today. I am forever grateful to New Age Records and Mike Hartsfield for being a piller in the hardcore community that has not swayed with terrible trends and flash in the pan ideas. Having a record on New Age Records is nothing short of a dream come true and all I wanted since I started screaming into a microphone".

Plans are being finalized for a 3 song 7" coming out this Fall/early Winter.
